No my father passed away in 1999

Comments:

I remember my dad flying to the Azores, Lybia and Morocco. "The Agenchia Star" was his plane, R6D, #601. He took me to work with him a couple of times. I was 9 or 10. He retired an ADJat after heading up the jet engine shop at Oceana NAS. He used to talk about his time in VR-22 and truely loved flying and working there.

Retired Marine here, but recently my wife came across what appears to be a silver mug from the O club. It belonged to a Lt. J.F. Murphy. If he is still alive I would like to connect with him and give him back his mug. If he is not and there is someone who served with him, I'd rather it go to a buddy or a museum for your Squadrons history to be preserved. Thank you all for your service.

Comments:

I ended up a TD-2 for almost the last two years I was at Moffett in VR-7. I ran and repaired the Connie Simulator. I worked with Bill Dohrman and Harold Smith. It was great duty, I got non flying status flight pay, and pro pay on top of that.

The TD school was perfect training because when I got out in '61 I got a job with IBM as a tech and worked for them for 47 years.

I would really like to get in touch with my First Class at Moffett, his name was Brigham. He got out and went home to up state New York.

I have just discovered this site. I served in VR-7 Moffett Field and was transferred to VR-22 Moffett just before leaving active duty July 1966. This was great duty. I learned about VR-7 from LCDR Dolan when I was in VW-13 Argentia. I am now fighting the VA for Agent Orange prostate cancer disability. They say I have to prove I was in Vietnam. I was there many times over the 3 year period often into Da Nang,Bien Hoa and Phu Kat which were heavily sprayed. Any help is appreciated. Bob Neal LT USNR-R 655865 916-872-8295

Started out as AN and ended up as AE2. Loved the area. Felt guilty for being stationed stateside while friends of mine were freezing in Korea....asked to be transferred to the fleet but was told I was "4-engine trained" and that was that. Ended up getting married while at Moffett. Many good memories of the area.
